  6. pyro gas damp randomizing

    pyro gas damp question how can i vary how gas damp effect each of my explosion can i control the effect of damp using some sop level attribute?

I want to run my python code from object level of the houdini node network. basically if i pass my scene file to another person, they should be able to run the code from from within hip file's node network itself instead of passing on a separate shelf button I tried using the python node on the object level but it doesn't have an execute option that the other person can use. any one has an idea?

  21. geometry node in python

    kind of a basic question.. how to create a geometry node in scene context in python I know i can create a sphere inside a geometry node using x=hou.node(“/obj/box”) y=x.createNode(“box”,”mybox”) but how do i create a geometry node?
  22. Cloud noise with rest field

    Here what is working for me: 1.I store rest field of points scattered on a sphere before moving it around with a simple transform 2.I then convert the scattered points into a vdb density and apply some noise on it using volume vop 3.Since I base my noise on the rest field inside my volume vop, my noise does not float This is all good ---- But i just cann't get this to work with a cloud noise Although I am trying to use a rest field inside the volume vop of the cloud noise, the noise still seems to float I have attached a scene file showing both above rest.hiplc
  23. Cloud noise with rest field

    awesome! thanks for that eko..
